Are you DoughNUTS for Donuts?! These decadent donuts are not daunting, but are quite possibly the easiest donut recipe you’ll ever make. I make this as a classic, non-chocolate, donut also. They are best fresh out, while still warm and delicate. Dare to try this delightful recipe and enjoy!
Donut Ingredients:
1 ½ Cup Self Rising Flour
¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Powder
2/3 Cup Non-Dairy Milk (Soy or Almond)
Oil for Frying

Directions:
-Heat oil to 365-400 degrees. I used my electric skillet this time around, but have made it before right on the stove with a pan filled with oil too.
-In large bowl whisk together dry ingredients to combine. Stir in Almond milk with a spoon to combine. Mixture will look crumbly but should easily form a ball.

-Flour surface and turn out mixture to form a ball.

-Roll out until about ½ inch thick and cut into donuts.

-You can use a donut cutter. I like cutting these into mini donuts – makes about 16-18 mini donuts.
-After you cut out the first round. Fold over remaining dough and roll out again. Keep going until there is not enough dough left to cut out.

Note if you do not have a donut cutter: My donut cutter broke the last time I made donuts, I haven’t replaced it yet, so for this recipe I cut out the donuts with a stemless wine glass and for the center I used my cupcake corer.

      Thank you @Laurina. That is wonderful, let me know how they turn out for you and your son! My kids (son too especially) have a sweet tooth and they love these best with cinnamon/sugar – shaken up in the bag and I’ll make them non-chocolate using 1 3/4 Cup of the Self-Rising flour instead. Chocolate is good too of course!

    🙂 I LOVE doughnuts . . . or actually the thought of them . . . but then when I stop and really THINK about them, I remember the lump-of-lard feeling in my belly the last time I ate one and all desire disappears. I bet these would not leave that feeling in my stomach. 🙂 They look delish!!
